New DoD/Rand report populates searchable, predictive database on sexual assault in the U.S. military

The U.S. Department of Defense recently released a study on sexual assault in the U.S. military. The data it generated from over 170,000 survey responses has formed the basis for all kinds of statistics broken down by gender, location, and service branch, allowing analysts to project the likelihood that any given service man or woman will be sexually assaulted in a given location. On a number of Navy ships, over 1 in 10 servicewomen will likely experience sexual assault in the next year. The statistics have been generated to identify problem areas and examine what policy action can be taken to fight sexual assault.
